The Underside of Power. Produced by Ali Chant & Adrian Utley. Album The Underside of Power. The Underside of Power Lyrics. Because I've seen the underside of power It's just a game that can't go on It could break down any hour I've seen their faces and I've known them all We're on the wrong side of the power It's a shadow It's just a fire thrown across the wall. Hold on Standfast Stay strong Change is coming on One day a change is gonna come

The Underside of Power goes even further. As a band, Algiers is not easy to define, and their music here - which offers a perfect soundtrack for the disbelief and disillusionment of the Brexit vote and the ensuing rage and paranoia resulting from Donald . rump's election - is equally mercurial, but not limited sonically or topically.
After releasing their self-titled debut in 2015, the trio of Franklin James Fisher, Ryan Mahan, and Lee Tesche were joined by former Bloc Party drummer Matt Tong. Their sophomore album, The Underside of Power, strives to be the rallying cry for a tumultuous time. Sessions for the record began in the UK during Brexit with Adrian Utley of Portishead. Utley was added to bring even greater urgency to the band’s aggressively political recordings.
